The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — NaBloPoMo Day 2 — Why I Quit on the #Chronicle150.

I started 2017 with a plan—or at the very least, something resembling one. Months later, most Canadians probably forgot, but we did indeed celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday this year! The hype was all too real between Ottawa’s grandiose plans and brand aplenty who wanted to make their mark—everyone wanted in on the […]

Now that I’ve got my momentum back, it’s time to revisit the #Chronicle150 — and who better to reintroduce you to the series than a powerful entry from Jeremy Anthony Goring? I have to apologise to Jeremy for this one. I wanted to get his piece out way earlier, […]

Hello, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome back to the #Chronicle150, where we strive to find 150 Canadian stories to commemorate this nation’s 150th birthday! The series took a break for a while—you wouldn’t believe how much is going on here behind the scenes—but it’s high time this project got […]

Gotta say—I thought I’d struck Pauleanna’s nerve in my hunt for Tales contributors. She’d told me she was too busy when I pressed her with one of my emails, but one brief look at her résumé will tell you that’s exactly what she was! Pauleanna’s ode to her country shows […]

#Chronicle150 — 150 Truly Canadian Stories for its 150th Birthday — #34, Talia Leacock, Storyteller

For the #Chronicle150, one thing I really appreciate is when people don’t feel forced to stick to the script. I met Talia when scouting contributors for this year’s Tales from the 2.9, quickly intrigued when I realised she holds a degree in professional writing from York University! I’ve developed […]

Grace Pan is very likely my favourite foodstagrammer in this city. There. I said it. We met under… less than ideal circumstances (just saying, when a person you just met is willing to sift through garbage to help you find your wedding ring—friend for life), but I’m entirely glad […]

When I ran this year’s Tales from the 2.9, one of the more unexpected responses was from Ann Asher, who proposed writing a piece on a local entrepreneur to profile! There’re so many people living in this country of ours, and Stan Grey is but an example of everything […]

Black Fridays — #1, Stephanie Konu, Artist, Lilly Bo Chic

I’ll admit it—my cranial cup doesn’t quite runneth over when it comes to Black Canadian history. I mean, I wasn’t exactly surrounded by Black folk growing up, with many of the opportunities my parents afforded me not exactly aligning with the archetype of how the world saw Black people at […]

#Chronicle150 — 150 Truly Canadian Stories for its 150th Birthday — #30, Gail Vaz-Oxlade, Financial Expert, Debt-Free Forever

I first crossed paths with Gail in 2016’s Tales from the 2.9 when a mutual friend connected us for her radio show on Newstalk 1010! I remember being nervous as heck—Sarah and I are huge fans (watching syndicated ‘Til Debt Do Us Part episodes numerous times), so every time she’s willing […]

I admittedly had a far more grandiose introduction in mind for the second phase to #Chronicle150, but there’s an àpropos saying about the best-laid plans of mice and men that comes to mind instead. Tales from the 2.9 was quite the ordeal and an ambitious way to start #Chronicle150, […]
